    A used Fender deluxe reverb and a Klone pedal should get you there nicely and be under budget.

    As long as you don’t take the Deluxe’s volume over 7, I think you’ve nailed it! (Even if it wasn’t chasing Mayer tone, that would be an awesome setup. Put an EP Booster in there too and you’d have a 3 channel rig)

    I suspect, based on @sergiodeblanc 's eclectic musical (& fashion) tastes, that he does not normally play the blues. He probably can, but chooses not to.

    He's a Chicago guy that hates the blues. Go figure. It's not just "blue" stuff though. He hates harmonicas, too.

    Now, whose fault is that? Toddler blues is not a personal fav genre of mine, either.

    I'm not sure, exactly, whose fault it is. All I know is that when he said harmonica was the worst instrument ever invented that I HAD to get one for Paco! :D Cuz that's how I roll!

    ‘if you can do no good, at least do it without harmonica accompaniment.’

    Ne too, buddy. Me too...

    BTW, I believe the real problems stem from banjo ownership. They should be saved exclusively for zombie smashing...”Double-tap!”

    The blessed Gorilla combo amp is THE quintessential blues amp, and if you don't have one in your main rig you are missing out my friends and brethren.

    As a more serious answer, I'm also siding with the Channel H as mentioned earlier in this thread.
